We got an email from Kommandant Kolchak.
Our mission, if we chose to accept it, was for me and Honey to increase our physical activity together by 30 minutes, 3 or 4 times a week.
Hmmmm. That is challenging.
We already walk 45-60 minutes each day. We play regular games of fetch in the park. We scramble over the natural agility obstacles that surround us—fallen trees, construction barriers, and boulders.
Until a recent bout with tendenosis (note to self: you’re too old to run without stretching), we ran 5K every day.
How could we meet the challenge and put our unique Something Wagging spin on it?
I got it!
How about if I increased my workout while bonding with Honey without increasing her activity levels? After all, she’s skinny and I’m fat (see photographic evidence).
Our current exercise regimen is working for one of us. We just need to up the effort on my part.
That’s why our exercise and bonding challenges will include pulling Honey in my bicycle cart, taking her kayaking, and maybe even some Golden Retriever leg lifts (Don’t worry, Honey, I’m just kidding. I think.).
Even if I’m getting the greater physical workout, the training it takes to keep Honey relaxed during our adventures will keep our bond strong.
Wouldn’t you like to join us?
K9 Kamp is open to all. Last year even one lucky kitty was an honorary K9. So how do you join the fun?
